Abstract: Ropacus UFZ B 408 is able to use pyridine, a potentially growth-inhibiting substrate, as the sole source of carbon, energy and nitrogen. In a previous publication [l] we reported that with the simultaneous utilization of a second carbon and energy source in carbon-substrate-limited chemostat culture, stable steady states could be achieved at higher dilution rates than with growth on pyridine as the sole substrate. Owing to the higher growth yield during growth on such a substrate mixture, both the specific p…
